When it comes to directing a human resources (HR) function, Steve Milovich is not your typical leader. As the Senior Vice President of Global Human Resources, Talent and Workforce Diversity for The Disney/ABC Television Group, his creativity and unique, pragmatic approach to solving both large and small challenges has led to the implementation of several forward-thinking HR initiatives for Disney employees, which is fitting for a world-renowned company that thrives on innovative excellence.
Milovich joined The Walt Disney Co. in 2002 as Senior Vice President of Corporate Human Resources, Organization and Leadership Development. In this role, he developed and implemented the first companywide talent and succession planning, performance management and talent acquisition programs. In his current role for The Disney/ABC Television Group, Milovich oversees all aspects of the organization, executive compensation and HR efforts worldwide. Leading the recent joint venture between ABC News and Univision News is just one project currently on his plate.
